How To Wind Your Open Watch

How To Wind Your Open Watch

  1. Take watch off of wrist.
  2. Hold Watch so that 12 o’clock is upright.
  3. Turn winding crown clockwise until mainspring is tight. (You can turn it backwards instead of lifting your fingers off, if you like to use a more of a twist back and forth motion. There is a clutch that allows you to turn the crown counterclockwise without damaging the movement.  It just doesn’t wind the mainspring when turned counterclockwise).
